Tutorial nr. 2

Become a writer of powerful long texts

“When I write a new text, I sit to build a ‘robot’ out of simple, yet beautiful words that will keep working for me for the next 10 years." - Mario

Luisa, Mario, and Larry are digital nomads who work online while traveling the world.

They write internet texts for a living.

These texts start doing something very powerful once they are published.

Their power is to perform specific actions many times once they are published.

We deconstruct the jobs of digital nomads who write these kinds of texts (also known as "robot-texts").

I was blown away by this upcoming tutorial. Let me tell you why and how to get it before June 20th.

These digital nomads are traveling the world with light computers and write at least one text per month.

Their lifestyle is paid entirely from this form of writing. We want to share with you what these writers know, what techniques and scripts they use, and how they make a living from it. So you can start doing the same.

No matter what kind of career you want to pursue (to become a digital nomad, or just to help your business), this tutorial will teach you how to write texts that work. 

They see these long texts as robots, because once they are written, they work for them online and forever.

OK, maybe not forever. They do update them every few years.

You will learn how to write and use these powerful texts to generate separate income sources.

Just like they did. Just like we in Sende do it.

Mario, Lucia, and Larry are three digital nomads who perceive and execute (blog) writing completely differently from other blog writers.

Mario sees writing as building a “robot from the words”. This robot can sell for years. But it can also make a real change in the society.

Lucia sees it as a field mission. She writes only one blog post per month. Sometimes she travels to investigate the topic. But more often, she does the whole research online from the coffee shop. Her blogs sell her own online products.

Larry sees it as an assignment. Each assignment: one nice salary check. 

This tutorial will teach you how to build your own robot (or a powerful text, an assignment, or call it however you like) with simple sentences.

Small disclaimer: I met one of them in Sende and the other two during my trip to Switzerland and Slovakia, in different periods and years. 

Now I have contacted them again.

Back then, each of them gave me a few golden pieces of advice that completely changed the way I write today.

Like this advice I got from Mario: “Edo, you probably learned to write essays, proposal drafts, and academic papers at your university.

Now you know how NOT to write for the masses. 

Our job is to take one topic and retell it in such a way that people will want to repeat it over dinner with their friends."

Wow. I had always thought we would look smarter if we used more complicated and sophisticated language.

Now, I went deep to connect all the pieces of the puzzle behind this digital nomad job which is driven by probably the most powerful skill on the internet: writing. 

I thought that I knew how to write (at least a bit). 

They packed me with so much applicable advice I didn’t even know existed. (I will tell you about some of them in a minute).

When I was listening to their advice I was so thrilled that I wanted to open a blank document and start typing immediately. 

By the end of this tutorial, you will possess the skills of a new age journalist - storyteller - communicator for commercial purposes

With this training, you will be a 2021-modern-skill-hybrid who knows what and how to write while earning income at the same time.

Then you can move to the village, live in a cabin and chop wood for your fireplace and type robot-texts on your computer.

You could also travel the world, or keep doing what you do now, but with high-end blogging skills. 

This tutorial teaches you how to write without following the usual rules of the internet.

At the same time, you will learn writing techniques that will change your writing forever. 

Among the many patterns I observed while interviewing Mario, Lucia, and Larry, was that they take more inspiration from classic literature—from good old writers—than from the modern bloggers.  

This is an actionable tutorial. It comes with clear actions after each chapter. It is full of juicy techniques where each sentence is something noteworthy. 

You know that feeling when you read a book and you don't want to skip a page before writing new notes for fear of forgetting?

This is how I felt after speaking with the three of them. All these notes are now part of one tutorial.

This tutorial is also complete. That way you don't have to go through 300 links to understand the whole story behind this business. It's all here. That's our job.

The big idea behind Village nomads tutorials is to compress a whole career into one long piece. 

I know that it sounds crazy but it’s our promise. This doesn’t mean it’s easy. Each tutorial requires your time and effort. 

How do we make sure that our tutorials are complete?

We reverse engineer the process and test everything.

The first version of this tutorial is already done. Two people are now using this tutorial to build their business (as writers of powerful texts).

They send us real-time feedback when they are stuck or when something is unclear.

Then we fix it. And only then, do we publish.

On the day this tutorial is published, we will be 100% sure that you will have all the information necessary to start doing this job. We want you to discover this new world and start working for yourself. 

After completing this tutorial, you won't be able to write as well as the best bloggers in the world, but you'll have the skills to get into the top 5% (and to reach the top 1% depends only on your efforts).

The best part is that there is so much work out there for the top 10% of bloggers and content writers, because 90% of text on the internet is boooooooring.

That is the same reason why there will always be plenty of work for people who take this tutorial seriously. 

Tutorial will be divided into 3 big chapters: 

1. Writing well (how to write powerful texts)
2. Your business and how to find your first clients and products (actually we have already found you some products for you)
3. How to run this business from anywhere

You will learn how to take your writing to a new level. Some techniques include: 

"Choosing the right topic. This is one of the most important parts of good writing, and you will learn the entire system behind it.

You will different ways to write intros.

How to use use zeugma in “dry” blocks of your texts

“Homer’s technique": when you dumb down a complicated or sophisticated concept (yes, Homer Simpson). It works like this:

Let’s say this boring ship transport company that connects the US and Europe with internet cables needs you to write a blog post about them.

You don’t say:

“These ships are deploying fiber optics cables through the ocean to ensure the global flow of network data”.

Instead, you use “Homer’s technique” and you say: 

“These ships lay down internet cables on the ocean floor.

They transport your Facebook message between Europe and the United States within seconds.” 

This way, you help readers NOT to google words:

“Deployment”, “fiber optics”, “global flow of network data”. These words and phrases are very familiar to engineers.

But not for the audience we want to write to.

This real example is even worse:

”Our under the sea fiber optics cables made of high-tensile-strength galvanized steel wires surrounding a copper sheath, surrounded by more layers of steel armor and polyethylene insulation.”

Instead, you should say: “Our internet cables are covered with special steel that would leave any shark without teeth.”

You will learn another dumb down technique, it's called: "Neighbor role". You can use it to simplify conversations between states or between big institutions by giving them the roles of two neighbors.

This is used when you want to explain the context (with factual information), but you don’t want to drive your readers into boredom.

For example: 

To illustrate the political dialogue between China and Russia, you give the role of China to your neighbor Manolo and the Russian role to your neighbor Julia.

Then, you make the same fact-proven conclusion just as if Julia and Manolo are chatting. 

That gives your story a bit of humor and makes your readers understand the context. 

Instead of saying: “During bilateral talks between Chinese state officials and Russian representatives, Chinese officials proposed a policy which would allow their cargo ships to stay longer in Russian waters. However, Russia declined...

”You put them in “Neighbour role” and say:

China: “Comrades, let us park our ships in your waters for a few more days.”

Russia says: “Not a chance”. 

It is only appropriate in certain situations to use this oversimplified language. The tutorial explains it.  

You will also learn:

“Compare technique” - When something looks like a big deal until we compare it with a real life situation (often from another country and reality).

- Giraffe standpoint: how to choose your angle or perspective for a story. For example, if you climb a tall building just behind Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, you will be able to tell a story from that standpoint.m

But if you climb on the roof of a house in the favelas of Rio, you will tell a completely different story.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to choose your viewpoint and which building to climb so you will be able to tell a story from a unique perspective. 

La lista - You'll get access to a writing script (more like a checklist or reminder) that digital nomads use for their businesses. Lucia calls it “La lista” which helps her not to forget any of the techniques.

The numb technique - We become numb (indifferent) to events that occur far away. Important news from Nigeria rarely affects people in Europe.

But when your neighbours start fighting and pull each other's hair, that becomes a more “important” event in your day.

This technique teaches you how to tell your story in an “important” way. 

You will learn different ways on how to find inspiration for good stories by using random objects and popular narratives.

Each technique is like a mini-course but briefly explained so you can use it right away.

There are more than 30 ways to monetize your writing, but you will learn 9 that are the easiest and most profitable in terms of effort, time, and the online market.

For example: Lucia just sells her own products with writing. That is her own monetization strategy.

Larry writes for others. He doesn’t even have a personal website nor his own product. 

You will learn how to find products that you can sell with your writing.

There are many sites that offer you a product through an affiliate system, so every time someone buys from your blog with a link, you get a percentage of the sale.

However, we found a few great products that don't use these platforms, allowing you to get started and make at least 50€ to 100€ on each sale.

You will also learn how to connect with companies that have excellent products so that you can offer to write one powerful article for them in exchange for a percentage (or monthly salary).

People who sell something always want to sell more. If you help them do so with your powerful articles they will be forever grateful.

You will also learn about content distribution.

Also find out about running your business online, how much to charge, etc. Those small and unknown details that kept you from starting your own business will be revealed.

You will be sitting in front of your laptop (tablet or even phone with external keyboard), order coffee at the bar, and write texts that will pay you to become a digital nomad.

Many people work as writers of these powerful long texts. But on the global scale, there are so few of them.

Anyone who knows the alphabet can write, but most people write texts that nobody reads.

That's why there will always be jobs for anyone who learns this craft.
